The very changeable and suddenly cold weather is loved by the politicians. It makes people think that global warming is not real, so people are easily confused.
The simple fact is that this cold is a part of the atmosphere getting warmer. This causes much more dramatic weather. A warmer atmosphere causes the weather patterns to move away from their traditional pathways. The result is that parts of the globe will get hotter while others will suffer periods that are even colder.
However, the overall effect is that the winters will get shorter, the summers longer,and the world average temperature will continue to rise.
Our politicians need to understand this, if they can.

What do our politicians have to hide?
I was disgusted to learn that the Labor, Liberal and National parties were against a federal independent commission against corruption (ICAC).
I usually vote Labor, but Labor's opposition to the ICAC is slimy. The Liberal and National parties are just as slimy.
What the heck have they all got to hide? Is there corruption at the core of our federal parliament?
The NSW ICAC upon which Bill Shorten proposed to model the federal ICAC, does not make NSW impossible to govern. In fact it got rid of corrupt criminals like Obeid, who spat on the Labor party. Barry O'Farrell, a Liberal premier, also took expensive wine as a gift, enough to make his Premiership untenable.
We have the right to have our federal parliament free of corruption. We need to be vocal as citizens and demand a federal ICAC.

Karma will strike 'heartless' kitten killer
This letter is for the cruel, heartless driver of the car or motorbike that sped up Rosedale Court at lunch time on Monday, August 5 and ran over and killed our beloved kitten, Mittens.
This beautiful little kitten was born on January 3, 2018 and she came to live with us as a rescue kitten.
She enriched our lives as she had the most gentle nature and the most beautiful little face in the world. My children and I will never forget this wonderful little kitten who came into our lives and was part of our loving family.
My son found our beloved Mittens after you hit her and just drove off. You are a disgrace to humanity and I hope every night you are plagued with nightmares for your despicable act. Karma will strike you.

Re the abortion bill debate (GP, Wednesday, August 7).
Real tasteful form of humanity, the left DEMANDING abortion but would oppose the death penalty for murder or rape.
